Penumbra: Megan Burns & Francis Matthews
The Molesworth Gallery is delighted to present Penumbra, a joint exhibition of the work of Megan Burns and Francis Matthews. Although Francis is a realist and Megan is an abstract painter, both artists are concerned with light and shade - with the ensuing contrasts giving their work its dynamism. Both also have a strong underlying geometric structure to their compositions and a tightly controlled, tonal palette. All of which gives their work an interesting formal juxtaposition of style, draftsmanship and palette, but with more in common between the two artists than at first apparent.
